It’s odd coming together with NHL rivals like this, but there’s no hard feelings or grudges, we’re all here to win Gold for Canada. One guy I’ll get to know well is Marc-Édouard Vlasic, the only other player from Quebec. We’re roommates.

I'm quoting this from the WC forum, hope you mods can be mindful of that this one time, just to show how ridiculous it can become when organisers get greedy.

To demand such absurd prices for tickets, during a repression, is beyond retarded. Fans are doing the right thing and stay home.
Zetterberg commented on the low audience and said something like: "With those prices, I'm not surprised."
To also host the tournament in Stockholm was of course also dumb. It's far from a hockey town.
I watched the first period of the game and there were three things that were shockingly horrible.
1. The amount of people showing up. The arena was dead silent.
2. The referees. If you think the NHL refs are bad, just wait till you watch one of these WC games
3. The Youtube commentators. What the ****? That's all.
